5th December 2012, 2 comments
The use of the Piet disguise, with police officers being made up with black face paints to resemble the Sinterklaas servant, resulted in the arrest of one youth with a stolen iPad, the AD said.
Other people were given warnings for insulting the Piets. These included discriminatory and ‘sexually-tinted’ statements, the paper said, without giving further details.
‘You would not want to know all the things which are shouted at Piets,’ a spokesman told the paper.
